the rest was geared to a domestic audience already campaigning for reelection president trump is keen to show he's keeping a campaign promise withdrawing u.s. soldiers from a generation of war kimberly hellcat al jazeera the white house the 39 people found dead in the back of a container truck in england are believed to be chinese nationals the bodies were found in a wednesday at an industrial estate in gray's that's just east of london a northern irishman arrested on suspicion of murder remains in police custody well al jazeera is lawrence and he joins us now live now with the latest from london lauren so the police have been revealing more details about the nationalities of the victims what more they've been telling us lawrence. yeah that's right dave that is the developments of the day they say they were all chinese $38.00 adult men and one young adult woman and that's that the fact they were chinese has also massively led to everybody speculating that they may well have been weak is from western

china obviously deeply persecuted by the chinese states there's a community of legal refugees in turkey and several ways for refugees as we know to cross by land into the european union from turkey other through bulgaria which is fiercely protected by the bulgarian border guards or by lands in sioux northern greece and somehow however they these chinese people got there they found their way to belgium where the container itself was met by a lorry which had travels across the u.k. from the republic of ireland. northern ireland and that's where they froze to death the other observation the national crime agency in this country is making is that it is now a favored option by criminal gangs to puts. asylum seekers and refugees inside refrigerated lorries it seems to me for the simple and horrific reason that it's much more difficult the heat seeking equipment that border guards use to try to find out if there's a person inside
8:02 pm
a container it's much political they see what the quitman to work if they're in a fridge. lawrence i mean you know it's a horror story but i mean are the police any closer to understanding why this lorry took such an unorthodox and circus route with its human cargo. no no they're not and they're working with a belgium or forces the battle forces on that at the moment and obviously they're trying to find out that it's anyone at these these people were that the main focus and i think i think a lot of you really think this is worth saying is that they're treating it as a criminal investigation and all the politicians in this country saying it was the awful these criminal gangs exploiting people in this way which entirely diverts from the point that the only reason why criminal gangs and people traffickers are making so much money out of all of this is that the refugee resettlement program in the european union is absolutely destroyed so there's this thing called the dublin regulation under law which insists that a refugee has to try to seek asylum in the 1st european country they get into and if you want to come to the u.k. that automatically means you can have to get yourself smuggles otherwise everybody
8:03 pm
would have to get asylum in hungary or greece or will bulgaria or one of those countries and european countries routinely break the law by refusing people asylum claims and if that refugee if that refugee policy under law was abate inside the european union then criminal gangs wouldn't make any of these money and people wouldn't die in the way they're doing lawrence thank you for. when we come back the remains of the dictator ruth spain for 36 years or exude from the. lost. and i'm nicholas holland on the outskirts of nairobi in a flower exporting form find out next whether deal or no deal our exporters here in kenya say you know opportunity and direction. hello there. carol dry weather across japan but unfortunately we're heading into

8:09 pm
steps that were made in order to ensure that spain made a peaceful transition for democracy presiding over this was this enormous monument this more psyllium that was in a sense in essence a. reference to a dictator and now for those who supported him it was just a justifiable symbol but for a great many people that wasn't and it's more so the fact that that symbol also presided over one of europe's largest mass graves which contained victims from both sides of the spanish civil war with all of this there have been successive governments and the arguments growing louder and louder that for a modern democracy like spain for there to be such a technic symbol to a dictatorship one that really cost an enormous shadow over spain's modern history

8:21 pm
bottom line station that's watching that's enough. hi i'm steve clemons and i have a question the impeachment investigation of president may have begun but where does the dead let's get to the bottom line. in super divided america your views on one picture are very strong indication of where you stand on donald trump's impeachment look at this picture what do we see the speaker of the house nancy pelosi standing with mostly white men all around some of them are grimacing and she's pointing at the president if you see the leader of the democrats disrespecting the president united states you are probably
8:22 pm
anti impeachment but if you see an act of brave to finance a lone woman holding the president accountable then you're probably pro impeachment that's how divided the united states has become so is impeachment going to be a spark for an irreconcilable divorce between the people who live inside america or will it be a process that allows us to quote get over it to coin a trump team fortunately we have 3 people in the room that have all 'd the answers greg craig the former lead defense attorney for president bill clinton during his impeachment in 1988 and former white house counsel under president obama john fredericks chairman of the trump for president campaign for the state of virginia in 2016 and adviser to trump 2020 and a host of the john fredericks radio show which i have been a guest on and margaret carlson columnist for the daily beast and the 1st female columnist for time magazine thank you all very much for joining us today and we're going to try and get to you know as much of this impeachment story on the table as we can margaret let me just ask you for
8:23 pm
a moment to kind of tell me what the dashboard looks like as a person who has not really kind of gotten into the story an impeachment what are the priority concerns how is this shaping out from your perspective so may i just go back to your intro for a moment and point at you as nancy pelosi did and say that in any encounter between the speaker and the president the speaker always comes out ahead because she knows . how to deal with an unruly child. and on impeachment. the president has lately decided to call it a lynching. which is a fighting word if i've ever heard one but his his colleagues on the hill have not embraced that word because they're trying to find some way in which they protect their own office and don't jeopardize it but aren't totally in trump's camp because trump has done some things that actually do look impeachable and which at this very moment are being investigated by democrats on the border those impeachable things
8:24 pm
that the president has done better that are concerning republicans well certainly when it slashes over into something to do with foreign policy you even have golf buddies like senator lindsey graham coming out against donald trump on syria less so on ukraine but nonetheless troubled by it because they know that trump willingly put out the goods on ukraine by releasing the transcript which is part of the trump part of the trump mode now. greg remembers when it was it was not the crime it was the cover up that was always the problem now there's no cover up trump just admits everything and then discusses the lynching he doesn't dispute the facts and actually it upsets the ordinary course of business because
8:25 pm
actually reporters don't quite know what to do when they're not hunting down the watergate tapes or going to you know the underground garage to talk to deep throat you're left just with the impeachment and it's much easier to say that it's it's it's a renegade operation and you're going after the president i have is a witch then it is to actually go over the facts of the case because the facts are so damning greg i think people looking at the impeachment question i think part of it is a question of whether there have been illegal illegalities whether there have been high crimes and misdemeanors committed so there's a to margaret's point there has been you know a legal question but margaret also just mentioned lindsey graham in syria and you know the question of abandoning the kurds commander in chief has the right to designate where forces are and aren't and i would argue that that's not an impeachable offense that then throws into the question of political issues lindsey
8:26 pm
graham may be may be softening on the president because of policy differences as opposed to improprieties how i mean i know you have a sharp legal mind right now you have brought this otoh are we debating is it a political issue or is this a function of legalities let me talk about the process a little bit based on my experience during the clinton impeachment there was a there was a really scary moment for the defense lawyers who are and senator robert byrd was interviewed by cokie roberts just before the vote on the impeachment and he said as far as i'm concerned everything they have accused president clinton of doing he did . but i'm going to vote against his removal from office because it would be bad for the country and so at the end of the day the impeachment is a political process so the president should be worried about maintaining the confidence and the support of the republicans in the senate as much as he worries about whether or not he's committing impeachable offenses now one of the reasons i
8:27 pm
think we know the impeachment process is underway and it's going on now is because it's really sucking the air out of everything else you see it in the newspapers now there's a daily impeachment briefing you see it driving the campaign into the back pages the newspapers you see all the talk shows breaking news impeachment you see it in the house of representatives who are at least 6 committees in the house of representatives are focused on something to do with the impeachment that certainly happened in 1908 where everything sort of stopped until the impeachment. and watched the impeachment process continue and i think that's beginning to happen in the impeachment process with bill clinton with his 2nd term and as i recall and i could be wrong on this his popularity ratings were sky high when he left office and my incorrect know you're correct so he clearly as he went through the impeachment so i mean i think he got up during the impeachment so john is the
8:28 pm
impeachment process that has begun as far as as our colleagues here have said is this going to ultimately be good for president from and his political fortunes it could be if they get the right messaging and they get some adults in the room right now this is a tale of 2 cities and margaret is right on some of these issues because look the president didn't do anything wrong as far as illegality there's no impeachable offense there's no quid pro quo there's no mention of joe biden they can't find it but it doesn't matter right now in this stage that is irrelevant because the messaging coming out of this white house is absolutely horrific and if anybody's. stood like me at the press conference that mick mulvaney had my jaw dropped and was hit the ground i couldn't believe it 1st of all even if the how the press conference you don't have that many more secondly he came out to talk about having the g. 7 that darrelle which was the timing of that was just mind boggling and then he
8:29 pm
gets caught up in. misstating or stating or what ever the hell he was doing that had to be the most damaging press conference and the messaging coming out of the white house is amateur hour hit the gum that's why you're a supporter generally 5 point of the message yeah yeah yeah yeah i'm receiving this great right right right arm or c. so i don't even i would even say i hit the delete button steve that's an issue we have john get over it because i didn't see there were an impeachable offenses in fact i think trying to. admitted to impeachable offense and it's not just mick mulvaney by releasing the transcript of the call which he somehow in his addled thinking thought then if they did to him he didn't say the name biden he did ask for a favor he was keeping the money away from the president of ukraine to fight back against trump's pal lattimer putin all of it is there john there's nothing
8:30 pm
left to prove sure of but what i did was never connected there was never a quid pro quo with that but it doesn't matter margaret to your party how the favorite doesn't matter to you i ask you gerald ford when he was minority leader wanted to impeach one of the supreme court justices and they said to him what is the impeachable offense and he said what ever that held the house of representatives says it is so it doesn't matter whether it's a fence or not the bottom line is present trump is going to get impeached by the house they are going to impeach him palosi has to manage the 26 democrats that got elected in trump's districts that if they vote for this they're going down to 2020 she realizes that it's going to go to the senate and right now what they lack is a war room of adults corey lewandowsky dave bossie steve bennett people like that that can get the message out to republicans because right now it is
8:31 pm
completely me if course you don't have doubts he is the adult that you are really not in trouble ok greg craig let me ask you a question and i only have it john if you came out or one of your colleagues during the clinton impeachment process and was looking at one of the underlying you know offenses and said get over it america which is what mcveigh and he basically said about the ukraine. and so and there's now i mean this is i mean get over it we have t. shirts get over it we have a film clip i think of him. saying this and i have news for everybody get over it there's going to be political influence in foreign policy i'm talking mr carro that is going to happen elections have consequences and foreign policy is going to change from the obama administration to the trump administration and what you're seeing now i believe is a group of mostly career politics career bureaucrats who are saying you know what i don't like president trump's politics so i'm going to participate in this witch
8:32 pm
hunt that they're undertaking on the hill. so greg if somebody had done that in the clinton ministration or maybe any other demi i mean i'm interested in what you think would have occurred because we've got t. shirts now that say it you know with the 0 having a little orange wig on top of it this is probably the only thing i agree with john on today is that i think they have mishandled the messaging they mishandled the strategy. i think they miss handing the press presidency the the reality is that when president clinton was being impeached he was segregated walled off from the from the lawyer from the strategizing from the public argument of the impeachment and he spent all his time being president of states and he was very successful at it he negotiated a budget that was in surplus he had a series of international successes one in the white plantation between the palestinians in the israelis he traveled abroad he was at his those 6 months he was at his very best as the president of states and spent
8:33 pm
a very little time talking about the issues associated with the impeachment and all the messaging all the planning all the coordination between the various components of the white house and our friends on the hill were coordinated so the idea of someone just having a good idea and going out and saying get over it that never would have happened john you think this was a mistake i was horrific it was a it was a stupid mistake because it turned trumped from the victim to the to the aggressor as well that made no sense when i was there he said that i just shook my head and then he came out with flu. shirts and like you say with a wig on the oh and up to that point trump was being positioned as the victim this is a witch this is fake news i didn't do anything it was a perfect call and then it's well yeah get over it get over what the fact that he didn't do anything resenting to get over so it gore pulled the message until get back and the performance by mulvaney then. he was.
